Classic Rock 70s Style on 4M

 

Wake up sleepy heads! It’s time to start your day. A new week is here and the 4M crew is coming at you with some sounds that will make facing today a little easier. This week XmasDolly has given us two musical themes.

The first choice is your favorite Disney songs per/ Everyday Life’s request. Nope, you’re not experiencing déjà vu. I goofed last week and put my Disney tune selections up during freebie week. *smack self on forehead*  The second theme possibility is 70s music per/my request. 

Which ever theme you choose, you won’t go wrong and we want to hear your picks right here on Monday’s Music Moves Me!

Our lovely hostesses, XmasDolly, is still recovering from back surgery and is doing her best to dance with us. Be kind and take it easy with her. As for the rest of the 4M crew ~  JAmericanSpice, Stacy Uncorked), & myself are ready to shake our tail feathers with you!

The winter blues have my mind on one thing and one thing only. Sun. Fun. Water. Sand. Okay, four things.  Let our minds drift to some Hot Fun in the Summertime as we take this party to the beach! 

 

 

 

 

 

Did you feel the sun’s warmth crease your body or the giddiness of vacation fun rise within or the surf spray on your skin?

If you’re like me then perhaps you felt a little temptation to lay bareback in the sun or splash in the waves without any clothes before winter’s chill snapped me back to reality. *sigh* Think happy thoughts – spring will be here this week with the promise of the warmer days to come. Now, that’s better!

Right Back Where We Started From, Mony Mony, Crocodile Rock, & We’re An American Band on 4M

 

Welcome to 130th edition of Monday’s Music Moves Me.  This week’s theme is “Any song(s) which bring back good memories – music, commercial jingles, etc“.

I’m not sure why “Right Back Where We Started From” stands out in my mind, but when I hear this song it makes me happy. I assume it has something to do with a good experience, but I can’t swear to it. With that in mind, I do have some flashback songs  with good vibes in my soul. Dance with me down memory lane!

In the early 70s, I spent a week with my uncle and his wife. That was the highlight of my summer vacation. They didn’t have children at the time, so they indulged me just a bit. There wasn’t much to do in rural West Virginia, but there was always a steady supply of music. Whenever I think of such sweet times, Tommy James and the Shondells always come to mind….

 

As a kid, roller skating was one of the few things I got to do. It was favorite pastime for many. Although, we didn’t get to go a lot, when we were lucky to enough to go to the rink then it was a blast. One of my favorite songs to roller skate to was….

 

During my 9th grade year, we had a Christmas prom. This was really exciting, but we were not allowed to have dates outside of those who attended my school. That meant, DH who was then BF could not go. What a bummer!

He was or I should say is tricky. He found away around the school’s no date clause. He asked the local band (who he use to play with regularly), if he could sub as their drummer. I had no clue until this song played….

 

Memories and songs seem universally synonymous. It’s hard to not put a song with a particular experience – good or bad. Hopefully, you have more good memories than bad this Monday as you think on yesteryear for today’s theme. 

Are you ready to get dancing? Admission to this awesome party is totally doable. Here’s what you do….

  • Go to YouTube insert your music video of choice
  • Grab the “Monday’s Music Moves Me” Button 
  • Follow all 4 hosts, including the honorary co-host
  • Link your 4M below

Hostess of this virtual dance party is Marie of XmasDolly along with her co-hostesses:

Wayback Wednesdays Presents: American Graffiti & Happy Days

Can you believe it was only until recently that we watched this movie? It’s true! In this 1973 classic, retro flick is about a bunch of high school graduates spending their final day of summer cruising their favorite hangouts before they ship off to college. The flim is chocked full of wonderful music and stars galore! The popular 70s TV series Happy Days was a spin off from the movie.

Do you remember?  

Goodbye grey sky, hello blue.
There’s nothing can hold me when I hold you.
Feels so right, it can’t be wrong.
Rockin’ and rollin’ all week long.

 

Did you watch this it back in the day or did you catch it on re-run?

Who was your favorite character?

What Wayback Wednesdays fond moments transfer you back into time?
